Massena's Oldest Active Organization Still Going Strong


At a time when many local service clubs are struggling to find members, the Massena Luncheon Club is thriving.

The club is the oldest active organization in Massena, dating back to the 1930's.

It's members meet once a week at the Massena Country Club for lunch, talk with a guest speaker and socialization.

This week's guest speaker was our own 7 News reporter John Friot.

Members of the group come from all backgrounds, including business, education, health industrial and legal professions.

"I think it was like 1933, and they asked a bunch of businessmen for lunch, including my father. My father was a charter member of the Monday Luncheon," said current member Bob Squires.

"Lots of good people have been members of this organization, and unfortunately lots of good people have gone on before us, and are no longer with us," said John Feeley, who has been a member for 40 years.

The club members say while membership numbers have fluctuated throughout the years, the group remains strong and is expected to be around for years to come.
